In March 1942 the 88th, 89th and 90th Pursuit Squadrons formed the 80th Pursuit Group. In February 1943 the 80th PG was ordered to the Far East instead of Europe and would be equipped with the Curtiss P-40 "Warhawk". In May 1943 the 80th PG left for the Naggaghuli Base in the Assam Valley, India to protect cargo aircraft flying supplies from India to China by way of Burma and Japanese fighter aircraft. The sound made by the P-40 earned the 80th PG the nickname "Burma Banshees"..

Curtiss P-40N Warhawk

Designed to meet a USAAC requirement for a pursuit aircraft, the P-40 Warhawk was first flown on October 14th, 1938. This aircraft was tough, virtually trouble-free and saw continual improvements to arms, armor and engines. The P-40 served in numerous combat areas; often outclassed by its adversaries in speed, maneuverability and rate of climb, it earned a reputation for extreme ruggedness. Its strong construction, heavy firepower, and ability to dive enabled it to compete with enemy fighters, and it was a formidable ground-attack aircraft. P-40s were also flown by the famed Flying Tigers against the Japanese in China.
